Suzanne Vega — When Heroes Go Down lyrics

When heroes go down
They go down fast
So don't expect any time to
Equivocate the past


When heroes go down
They land in flame
So don't expect any slow and careful
Settling of blame


I heard you say
You look out for the feet of clay
That someone will be falling next
Without the chance
For last respects
You feel the disappointment

[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/suzanne-vega-when-heroes-go-down-lyrics.html ]
When heroes go down
Man or woman revealed
You can't expect any kind of mercy
On the battlefield


I heard you say
You look out for the feet of clay
That someone will be falling next
Without the chance for last respects
You feel the disappointment


When heroes go down
Man or woman revealed
Do you show any kind of mercy
On the battlefield?


When heroes go down
When heroes go down
When heroes go down
